aber hallo stem handlebar extender ?

Hi,

Can any one who here tell me what size of thread / pitch for allen bolts are , and who the actual manufacturer is ?

I tried contacting ThornUSA but hes wasnt too helpful and either ignored , or didnt want to tell me the manufacturer so I could contact them myself.

The reason being - that I want to replace the current ones in there ( im assuming m5 ) with longer 30 /35 mm ones.

thanks

Take the bolt out and to the Hardware store with a bunch of metric ,
stainless machine screws.
and compare..

Thread pitch will fit one into another if the same.

ha.....
I told you that Satori is the manufacturer...
and that best is if you go to the hardware store and find one which fits.
I also told you its metric ....

You are trying to use it with some kind of different diameter handlebar, which will void the warranty.
And puts the rider into grave danger.
I am not the person who will deliver different bolts or give detailed technical advice in order to do this.
makes sense ? the ignored part is simply untrue. You might not got the answer you liked to get.
